For the featured works, the finalists are selected based on a collection of a maximum of 10 achievements, awards, and leadership that have been achieved before.
For the evaluation aspects of the featured works, the student who is often called Afif relies on his achievements at the Asia Pacific MUN Conference (AMUNC). “AMUNC is the toughest competition and gives a deep impression of being able to give the Honorable Mention title to ITS,” said the student from the Department of Industrial Engineering.

The focus is raised on the use of technology and the development of innovation results that can have a positive impact on a broad scope.
The last aspect is related to ability in active English. Here, Afif’s ability is tested by conducting impromptu speech delivered for seven minutes. He got a topic about the development of renewable energy in Indonesia, specifically related to the use of wind, geothermal and solar energy as its source. “We are also assessed personally by psychologists, especially in daily activities and the interview process,” added this 2016 class of students.

For him, all finalists have very good profiles. There is no significant difference between one finalist and another, because indeed all finalists are the best representatives who have been selected from each university.
